Make Node.js Package. Become Famous.

Node.js has given JavaScript a new resurgence as a server-side language. No longer just for image rollovers and AJAX, JS is now available as a platform for creating lightning-fast, lightweight, networked applications. In this session, we will move beyond Node’s base web servers and Twitter applications, and into module development: those small, reusable components that are the foundation for every business application on every platform. Learn how to create a module within Node.js, how to test your module and validate functionality, and how to get your creation distributed into the wild. With this knowledge, you can make the next great Node package and become famous.

Jay is a code wrangler, software consultant, and president of Arana Software. He has been developing on the web for over 15 years, since the Blink tag lured him away from Visual Basic 3 in 1995. Despite maturing past the blink tag and animated lava lamps, he never lost his love of JavaScript, and is glad that the language is getting some well-deserved love.

Originally from Rochester, New York, he and his wife, Amy, have lived in Michigan since 2003. They like Michigan, but still consider themselves tourists, and probably always will.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for cheap parking in the area?

    • Mike W.

      Parking on the street is free after 6pm. Also there is a bank just east of 5th street, on the south side of the road, that has free parking after 6pm.

      Other than the free options, there are two ramps at 4th/Washington and 4th/William which is something like $1.25/hr.
